Project Log #4: Major Update

A project log for Micro-PID Module

This is a small PID Temperature controller, designed to be a drop-in module on a parent board.

Hey everyone, a lot has happened since I released my last project log. I have completely redesigned the board, and have shifted the scope of this project somewhat. The new design will be compatible with Arduino Nano, and can either be utilized as a shield, or as a standalone drop-in module. The reason, I redesigned with Arduino compatibility is to give users an easy way to interface with the module, and to allow for easier project integration.

As for software, the μPID will communicate with Arduino, or other interfaces with SPI. The microcontroller itself will be running Arduino-based software, which will be programmed using the megaTinyCore bootloader. I have also included options to switch between PWM and Analog outputs, as well as included programmable high and low alarm pins.

You will also soon be able to follow my projects, as well as tutorials, and subject guides on a new website I have been working on: I have a couple of items published, with more soon to follow. However, my page will be the best way to stay up to date with my projects.

As always, feel free to comment and share your thoughts and suggestions.
